My name is Christian. I've been lurking for a minute, also subscribed to the daily-ish, and I absolutely adore this forum and its many contributers. I am 22 and have been travelling the USA working Renaissance Faires on my hunt for homestead land! Now, I've found it!
Some dear friends have acquired 40 acres in Colorado, which we plan on turning into a sustainable farm and ecovillage project, starting next year. It's entirely undeveloped land with a hardy well, and my friends and I are just OBSESSED with permaculture and community living.
Our end goal is to start an LLC that will enable us to support our land as a "model" ecovillage, gathering resources and passionate people, so that our group can help start more ecovillages, well... EVERYWHERE.
I am a globally minded individual with a childhood dream of "changing the world," and I know that it starts with MY WORLD. I am so excited and thankful for the opportunities the universe has been throwing in my lap, and would love to connect with more people from all over as we all collectively move forward to a sustainably free future.
Where will you be in Colorado? I'm heading there next year as well. We will be on 4.5 acres on the western slope, with a well and a share of irrigation water. I'm pretty much just twiddling my thumbs until I can get out there next spring!
